West Indies Tour of India: So, he can play football, he is a tennis fan and now we spot the Indian skipper Virat Kohli play basketball! Yes, he was playing basketball with close friends while the shutterbugs captured him. The current ICC World No 1 batsman did not play the recently concluded Asia Cup, as BCCI allowed him to take rest due to excessive workload in the last few months. India went on to win the Asia Cup under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. Now, as India gets ready to host West Indies in their own backyard, Kohli will be in charge of the Indian team.
In the video, Kohli gets hold of the ball, then takes a shot, but misses. He is disappointed as he holds his hips in despair, just goes to show the competitive spirit he brings to the table, be it any sport.
Earlier, Kohli amassed a whopping 593 runs in Tests in England. He was in phenomenal touch and apart from him no other Indian batsman looked at ease in those trying conditions and that led to the downfall of the team.
Meanwhile, the first Test starts on October 4 in Rajkot and the team reached there on October 2 in the wee hours of the night, here is proof.
